Legal Transcription in India

The offshore outsourcing keeps on rolling inexorably to India . This, despite severe protests arising over shifting of hundreds of call centre jobs from the United Kingdom and the United States to low-cost countries like India, China and the Philippines, more and more firms and professionals have started realizing the benefits of outsourcing.

The latest to join the BPO wagon are British and Welsh lawyers, planning to move legal transcription production overseas, particularly to India , says BBC News.

The movement of more legal transcription work to India shows the confidence they have in Indian Companies. The advancement in technology means that solicitors can drastically reduce the number of legal secretaries they employ and at less than half the cost than it costs in UK .

In general, the legal secretaries produce legal documents dictated by solicitors, prepare legal files, and liaise with clients. A number of law firms are cutting jobs and moving legal document production to India , where transcription centers give quality service at an affordable rate.

UK 's Law Society wants the offshore companies to do the transcribing work in strict confidentiality and security and that liability remains with the UK firm. Some solicitors believe that clients might be unhappy about their legal work not being done directly by the firm they employ. But those who are promoting the idea say the cost savings will prove increasingly attractive.
